Generic memory isn't recommended by anyone. I would buy good memory from crucial.com. Prices are rising so I would do it quickly.
If you want to try to get your memory working anyways I can only suggest that you set the memory timings to 3 in the bios, that you don't overclock, and that you pray. Sometimes you get lucky with generic, sometimes you don't.
It's not a matter of buying two sticks, just quality memory.
